The School Games Mark is a Government led award scheme launched in
2012, facilitated by the Youth Sport Trust to reward schools for their commitment to the development of competition across their school and into the community, and we are delighted to have been recognised for our success.

With a many of our young people competing in local inter-school
competitions this year, we are extremely proud of our pupils for their dedication to all aspects of school sport, including those young volunteers, leaders and officials who made our competitions possible.

As part of our application, we were asked to fulfil criteria in the areas of
participation, competition, workforce and clubs, and we are pleased that
the hard work of everyone at our school has been rewarded this year.

A special thanks to:
Sam Wilson, PE Coordinator & Joseph Casey who have led the pupils in this year’s events and all the pupils at West Hill who take part in the Daily Mile, intra school sports competitions, District Sports, Indoor Athletics, Netball and Football matches throughout the year.


We look forward to applying once again in 2019!

Isle of Wight Day 1

July 2018

The year 6s had a great first day yesterday on their trip to the Isle of Wight with wonderful weather and for many, their first ferry journey. After lunch at the beach they visited a water mill and even fed some birds. They went back to the beach after dinner, built sandcastles, buried friends and generally had a great time.

Mr Goymer has made a video of the day which you can access by clicking on the link below:
